Fire Damages Union Kitchen A fire in the Union Building kitchen resulted in extensive damage to the ceiling and wiring early Sunday morning. The fire was discovered by a campus security officer around 1a.m. The Ogden City Fire Department answered the call, but the fire had burned itself out by the time they arrived. The cause of the fire was believed to have been an overheated deep fat fryer which had been left on when the kitchen closed earlier in the evening. Smoke and heat damage was estimated at $1500. Farrell.Shep-herd, Union Building Director, said that all repair and cleaning costs are covered by insurance. The custodial staff worked through the night cleaning up the thin layer of soot which covered most of the floors, and the facilities were available to serve the dormitory students' meals by 7 a.m. sky rt mmx NO. 29 i. v.: V Prior to the elections, it was estimated that around 800 students would participate in the elections. A total of 790 students cast their ballots Friday. Four offices went unopposed on the ballots. Two of these were for the president and secretary of the senior class. There were two unopposed presidential candidates, Dave Parkinson for senior president, and Marilyn Cottle for AWS president. No strong write-in campaigns were waged for any of these offices. However, Claudia Turner received a total of 47 votes in a write-in campaign against the unopposed candidate, Linda Batcheldor, for the junior class secretary. The election procedures received criticism from some who felt that certain candidates could protest a special election as some names were not spelled correctly on the ballots and others were not presented in alphabetical order. The office for AWS vice-president resulted in a close race. Marilyn Hards won by only three votes over Pat Mecham and 20 votes over Nancy Donaldson. There was only a two-vote separation between Peggy Hef-fernan and Robert Hunter on the senior senate ballot, but a large 30-count difference between them and Gayland Jesson. One of the more unusual campaigns was conducted by Dean Hughes who appealed to the sympathy of the voters by use of an "underdog" theme. He presented himself to the voters as a "born loser" who was running for personal gain. Defeated opponents for positions in last Friday's elections were: Ryan Rees and Gayland Jesson on the senior class ballot. Ron Johnson, president; Richard Creer, vice-president; and Ed Collins, senate; of the junior class. Clark Walker, Dennis DeDecker, Cheryl Taylor, Richard Bowman, and Doug Young lost out in the Sophomore election. Lindsay Curtis, Richard "Dick" Neves, and Tom Welch for president, vice-president, and secretary of AMS, respectively. AWS opponents were Nancy Donaldson and Pat Mecham for vice- president, and Marian Poulter, for secretary. OGDEN, UTAH tfuderafls PemorasSrcatfe tf (Protest Smoking Policy Cannon Outlines Demands; Kizerian, Suttlemyre Appeal for Compromise The Union Building lounge was filled to capacity Tuesday for the regular noontime presentation of Sound-Off. A special feature of this week's program was a smoke-in organized by Mephistopheles founder Jack Cannon. Mr. Cannon opened the program with an explanation of the reasons why he organized this demonstration. Cannon claimed that the Union Policy Board had avoided the question of providing smoking facilities in the present Union Building, and that the demonstration was therefore designed to by-pass the Policy Board and bring the matter directly to the attention of the Board of Trustees. Cannon further stated that he believed the Board of Trustees would approve smoking facilities. After Cannon finished speaking, studentbody Activities Vice-President Jerry Kizerian addressed the audience and explained what the Union Policy Board has Dr. Orlo E. Childs Ex-Weberife Will Address June Grads Dr. Orlo E. Childs, currently president of the Colorado School of Mines at Golden, will give the main address at Weber State's 78th annual commencement exercises on June 11 at 9 a.m. in the college stadium. Dr. Childs, a former teacher at Weber when it was a junior college, will have the privilege of addressing the first outdoor graduation services ever held by WSC. Previously held inside, the exercises were moved to the 10,000-seat stadium because of the increasing number of graduates and interested persons who yearly attend these ceremonies. A native Utahn, Dr. Childs attended Weber from 1931 to 1933. He later received his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, and obtained his masters degree in 1937 from the same institution. Dr. Childs was named a graduate fellow at the University of Michigan, where he earned a doctorate degree in petroleum geology in 1945. Between the years 1937-1942 he taught at Weber while the school was located at 25th and Adams. He has been an assistant professor at both Colgate University and the University of Wyoming. For 13 years he acted as explorations project director for the Phillips Petroleum Company of Denver. done on the matter. He explained that an investigation had been made as to the possibilities of allowing smoking in the present building or certain rooms thereof. Kizerian then presented the text of the engineers' report which outlined the modifications and costs which would be necessary to provide an adequate ventilating system to make smoking possible. The following is a part of the engineers report. For the building as a whole, certain conditions should be taken into consideration: (1) Since smoking was not a consideration set up in the original design criteria and was, therefore, not provided for in the design of the ventilation system, we do not feel that smoking should be allowed throughout the entire building, since the existing ventilation system is inadequate for smoking and odors would develop. Memorandum from Fred M. Johnson 21066 Subject: Cost estimate for remodeling of existing table tennis-billiard and bowling room. Cost estimate for table tennis room: $4,452.00 Cost estimate for table tennis and billiard room: $12,428.50 Cost estimate for table tennis-billiard and bowling: $27,931.00 Note: In my opinion the above work is a duplicate of work which will be done in some fasion in the Phase II contract which is under architectural design. All or any portion of the above items would be a complete waste of time, effort and money and should be discouraged. " While Kizerian was finishing his explanations, an estimated thirty persons lit cigarettes and began smoking at the 12:00 scheduled time. The smokers brought their own ashtrays and conducted themselves in a generally orderly manner. (Continued on page 3) Weber Presents Honors The second annual Wildcat Awards and Honors Evening will be held Thursday, May 26, 1966. Dave Parkinson, chairman of the event, announced that it will be held in the Fine Arts Center and will begin at 8:00 p.m. The program is free to the public. The purpose of the evening is to honor outstanding students and faculty who have excelled in various areas while attending Weber State. The categories for honor include Talent of the Year, Achievement of the Year, Athlete May 13, 1966 Hew Senate Can Save Scribulus' In Budget Talks The new senate will have a chance to restore or killScribulus in the budget review. The new senators will have an equal voice with the retiring senators. Although the budget that has been proposed is subject to change, it could very well pass as presently reviewed if the newly elected senators don't take time to understand the needs of the entire student body. The student Senate killedScribu-lus, the Weber State literary magazine, because it lacked student appeal. Many students do not realize that this year's issues broke all previous sales records for the magazine. The fall issue, for example, sold 650 copies of 700 ordered. Laurence Huston, editor of the Scribulus, has stated that "Scribu-lus is, first of all, Weber State College's literary magazine. It is student written and edited. It represents what is being done in the literary field at Weber." Huston has asked people to read through it; then let him know what they think. The senate of course will be pressed to cut the appropriations of some vital clubs and organizations, but the decision will ride largely on the views of the Incoming student leaders. Seniors!

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
